Working towards a more inclusive English-language classroom: Students with ADHD

Wiktoria Allan

Summary

It is reported 2.5-5% of adults have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (Ginsberg et al., 2014). In this talk, I will give an overview of ADHD symptoms, particularly in adults, and show you how creating a fair and inclusive classroom is beneficial not only for students with an official diagnosis, but for everyone.
